Additional Features

Active Spray Technology

Active Spray technology virtually eliminates the need to pretreat clothing. It works to saturate clothes with a mixture of detergent and water by spraying the load completely and evenly. It’s gentle on clothes while still providing improved cleaning performance that helps fight tough stains.

Precision Dispense

Precision Dispense provides optimal cleaning by releasing detergent at the right time. Plus, detergents and certain additives – like fabric softener and bleach – get mixed with water before they ever touch your clothes. The result is optimal fabric care and preservation for every load.

Low-Profile Impeller

Our low-profile impeller helps give clothes a thorough yet gentle clean. Its new design gives clothes more room to move, so they clean against one another. The seamless surface and unique vanes also help drive clothes from the outer rim to the center, where the deepest cleaning happens.

Estimated Time Remaining LED Display

Always have an eye on how much time is left during any cycle with our estimated time remaining LED display. Part of our updated digital console, it illuminates your selected cycles, options and available choices and lets you know when you can remove items from the washer.

Smooth Wave Stainless Steel Wash Basket

The Smooth Wave stainless steel wash basket gently guides clothes and helps protect fabrics from fraying and snags.

Quiet Wash Ultra Noise Reduction System

The Quiet Wash Ultra noise reduction system helps keep operational sounds inside the washer and out of living areas. Thanks to sound-absorbing material and a compact motor around the wash drum, you can install your washer virtually anywhere and know you won't be interrupted. People who like quiet will love this Whirlpool® washer.

Quick Wash Cycle

Our Quick Wash cycle can wash small loads in as little as 28 minutes6. It uses increased spin speeds to remove more water so clothes can spend less time in the dryer, so you have more time to do what you love.

Automatic Water Levels

Automatic water levels regulate the amount of water based on the size of the load. Only the amount needed to clean is used, increasing efficiency.

ENERGY STAR® Certified

ENERGY STAR® certified models exceed government standards by over 20% to help conserve natural resources and save money on your utility bills.

Presoak Option

Enjoy better cleaning with the Presoak option that lets you skip soaking outside of the washer. It works by adding extra time for it in the washer before the cycle starts.

5.3 cu. ft. Capacity

Put more in each load, thanks to our 5.3 cu. ft. washer. You'll even be able to wash larger loads and bulky items like a king-sized comforter.

Oxi Dispense Option

The Oxi Dispense option distributes oxygenated additives at the right time for enhanced cleaning results. Plus, it's an eco-friendly alternative to bleach.

Steam Clean Option

Add the power of steam to this stain-fighting option. It penetrates fabrics using increased wash action, rinsing and heat for even more help in breaking down deep soils.

Deep Water Wash Cycle

Take on stains with the Deep Water Wash cycle. It adds more water to help break down stains and improves the ability to rinse away soils.

Direct Drive Motor

The Direct drive motor is what helps our transmission system handle larger-capacity loads. It uses fewer moving parts so there’s less wear and tear over time.

EasyView™ Frameless Glass Lid with Slow-Close Technology

Create a quiet close, every time. Our EasyView™ frameless glass lid features slow-close technology to shut quietly. The lid also provides a better view of what's being washed and is quiet for an overall premium experience.

On/Off End-of-Cycle Signal

You'll always know when your wash cycle is finished, thanks to the end-of-cycle signal. This helpful tone reminds you when it's time to transfer clean clothes from the washer to the dryer. You can also turn it off completely.

Clean Washer Cycle with affresh® Washer Cleaner

Deep-fill the washer to clean even those areas that aren't normally reached by everyday cycles. Add an affresh® Washer Cleaner tablet to the Clean Washer cycle for best results.

850-RPM Max Spin Speed

The Direct drive motor provides fast spin speeds of up to 850-RPM in the washer to remove moisture from clothes, so they spend less time in the dryer.
